Arggg.... you make me feel so hungry!!!


I agree. Robyn, it is almost a crime to showcase such wonderful food. Now regular nasi lemak is almost off limits - we must have Medan-style!

That sambal is so mouthwatering.

*slurp slurp*


in the philippines, chicken inasal is also served in banana leaves. what's more, steamed rice is wrapped in such leaves leaving it sweetly scented.



The nasi and sambal, together, alone, would suit me just fine.


That's sort of my thoughts about Orange County, California. Just because I'm surrounded by soulless suburbia doesn't mean good food isn't to be found. An excellent sentiment and well expressed.

First time eating rice with banana chips, eh? Wasn't it a wonderful combination? :D


Ari - absolutely! Kinda wish they did nasi lemak this way in Malaysia.


Lovely article. i am visiting Medan myself in a few weeks time and was wondering if you could recommend a hotel or hostel which is centrally located..
thanks a lot in advance. Felix


i have ever tasted that nasi lemak
oh god!!!it's funtastic
i have been eating that nasi lemak since i was a primary student and i keep eating it until now
i would greatly recommend all of you to try for this nasi lemak if you're visiting medan
if you're a food lover, be sure to put medan in your must-go destination
it's a food heaven
